Getting started with Kestra — a Business Automation workflow example

About this blueprint

Getting Started Local files Postgres

This flow is a simple example of a business automation use case. It queries a PostgreSQL database, writes the data to a CSV file, and converts the CSV file to an Excel file, making the data ready for further analysis by business users.

The flow has three tasks:

  1. The first task queries a PostgreSQL database.
  2. The second task writes the data to a CSV file.
  3. The third task converts the CSV file to an Excel file.
